Album Review

This album won't supplant Double Live Gonzo! in the record collections of Nugent fans, and it certainly won't win him any new listeners, but just like 2008's Sweden Rocks (and his previous two studio albums), it's evidence that even as he persists in his obnoxious right-wing crankitude on cable talk shows and in print, when the Nuge straps on his Gibson, he can still lay waste to an audience. This July 4, 2008, show, recorded before a rapturous hometown crowd, is a greatest-hits run-through with a few surprises and a version of then-new single "Love Grenade," but the current rhythm section — bassist Greg Smith and drummer Mick Brown — gives the old songs a visceral kick, and Nugent's leads and solos scream and sting as powerfully as ever. There are guest stars, but they're stars within the Nugeiverse and/or the history of Detroit rock & roll — his guitar teacher, Joe Podorsik, shows up for a surprisingly mellow and tasteful "Honky Tonk," while drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek of Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels takes over on a version of that group's "Jenny Take a Ride," and Derek St. Holmes (vocalist in the '70s band that first brought Nugent to solo prominence) returns to the fold for "Hey Baby," "Cat Scratch Fever," and "Stranglehold." His clear, powerful voice adds something essential to Nugent's bluesy, funky hard rock, and a full-on reunion of the two men would be something special. Though three ten-minute tracks in a row ("Stranglehold," "Great White Buffalo," and "Fred Bear") is a little much to take as things wind down, ultimately, Motor City Mayhem rocks almost all the way through. Ted Nugent's still got it.

THE REAL DEAL

This is what Rock and Roll is all about. I first saw the Nuge in 1978 at Cal Jam II as a senior in high school, and 30+ years later this "Mad Man" is just as relevant as he was then. Perhaps even more so now given the pathetic state of the music industry. Wherein as most of his contemporaries have turned into oldies acts, or died!, Ted is rocking harder than ever, and sounding better than ever. He was a huge inspiration to my me as a musician, and continues to be to this day. A KILLER live album by the man who should be president !!!

Another live album

Another live album from Gonzo...becoming increasingly irrelevant. While many bands evolve and change, it is interesting how evolution has passed Nugent by...in more ways than one.

Awesome! What more can I say...

Throughout his lengthy career, guitar wildman Ted Nugent has reveled in the controversy and criticism that always seems to follow in his path. While there's no denying his exceptional talent on the six-string, his knack for penning arena rock anthems, or his standing as one of rock's top live acts, it's his non-musical endeavors that have caused the most condemnation from his detractors (his pro-right wing beliefs, pro-gun advocacy, appreciation of hunting animals, etc.). But by the...
